Thank you for posting here in the Community, advantedgepaints.

I have some information about sales receipts in QuickBooks Point of Sale.

There are three ways to find a saved receipt:

  1. The Quick Find from your POS home page.
  2. Viewing the customer's purchase history.
  3. Searching directly from your sales history.

If the name of the customer is on the sales receipt, you can use the quick search box at the top of the home screen to look for the customer as well as the prior sales from them. However, if it doesn’t work with customer orders (work order, layaway, sales order, etc.), you’ll need to really take note of the sales order/work order or layaway number.

It's a great idea that we can include a job number or name on the sales invoice. I encourage you to send a message to our Product Development Team. We want to hear your thoughts. You can send it by using the link: 

That's it. If you have any other questions or would like me to clarify anything else about your invoices, let me know. I am always glad to help in any way I can.​ Have a great rest of the day.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
